    In hawaii, I came upon a small tree about 20 feet high, and with light green fruit in small clusters. The fruit looked sort of like an avocado and about the size of a orange. The fruit on the ground felt spongy when i touched it.

    The world is just big enough for us to not realize how small it really is.

    I'd love to help and being here in Bali, chances are whatever it is you saw, we have them here too.
    Your description is a little vague sorry, I can't think what you mean.
    Is the fruit edible?
    What does the fruit look like?
    Any more details on the leaves of the tree?
    The flowers before the fruit?

    Give us a few more clues.

    Cheers, Troy.

    the fruit isn't edible(at least i don't think so), the leaves are sort of like calabash tree leaves, and the fruit are widest at the bottom, and there were no flowers.

    Could it be a breadfruit tree? Breadfruit trees will grow much larger than 20' but the fruit sounds kind of similiar.
